Fresh Snow By The Welland

Oil on Board, 10 x 14 inches

I painted this one as a demonstration piece to Breaston Art Group in Derbyshire a couple of weeks ago, only getting round to finishing it off yesterday.

It was largely an exercise in painting cool blues and greys, punctuated with a little warmth in the sky and the dead grasses.  I'm going to submit it for the ROI Annual Open Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London, together with 4 or 5 others.  It's entirely dependant on what the selection committee are looking for and it is obviously subjective, but I'm hopeful of getting something accepted.  I only got one in last year after getting two awards in '09, so we'll see if anything slips under the razor wire........
